‘The Voice’ Israel is proud to present yet another member of the Spielberg clan with incredible talent. A teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Israel’s version of ‘The Voice’ was released exclusively through The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, with a clip of Steven Spielberg’s niece, Jessica “Jessy” Katz auditioning for the show.

Katz, the 25-year-old daughter of Spielberg’s sister Nancy Spielberg-Katz, performed a version of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ during the blind audition round. The clip (seen below) ends before the judges, including pop stars Sarit Hadad, Shlomi Shabat, Aviv Geffen and Mosh Ben Ari, make their decisions.

Originally from the United States, Katz has been living in Tel Aviv for the last three years since making aliyah. She regularly performs in bars and occasionally supports Jessica Rabbit & the Blues Bunnies.

According to Katz’s official show bio, she is a devoted advocate of Israel who originally began her aliyah process with the intention of joining the Israel Defense Force’s ‘Nahal’ program.

Season 3 of ‘The Voice’ Israel premieres on June 8th. Watch Katz’s audition below.
